Hard to believe my baby boy turned six this week-end. We spent the week-end celebrating his 6th birthday. Yep, the top picture is from three years ago. He is going up fast. I’m amazed how his likes have changed as well. No more Nick Jr. unless he’s watching cartoons with his baby sister. He’s turned to Disney where they have real people, as real as it gets on TV anyway. No more dinosaur figures, hot wheels or toy soldiers. He has iPad, X-Box and Kindle
Fire to play computer games and learning activities and a new four wheeler for outside fun. You can find either a football or basketball in his hands. We received a new bike for his birthday. One without training wheels at that.
His taste in clothes has changed as well. No more Elmo, Handy Manny, or Cars tees. He’s into Nike, Addias and Puma. He now wears boxers, Jordan tennis shoes and his favorite sports team hats. He’s playing flag football and basketball. Where does time go?
There was a part of me that was happy to be celebrating his 6th birthday, but a sadness too because I know it’s just a matter of time before his interest change even more. Thankfully he still loves to snuggle with Mawmaw and thinks girls are yucky! I have a few years left before he asks for the car keys and heads out on a date.
